    Not entirely true. My girlfriend spends most of her time in the flat naked, I don't think about her in a sexual way unless we're getting jiggy with it.

    Anecdotal? Totes. But if I can look at my girlfriend, who I love with all my heart and think she is the most beautiful creature upon this earth (apart from the Venezuelan Poodle Moths, those guys are the business), whilst she is stark naked, and not want to immediately jump her bones (not to say that that doesn't happen, just that it doesn't happen perpetually)... then why would anyone want to do so to a total stranger who merely isn't wearing a bra?

    Besides, the main point about freeing the nipple is highlighting a long-standing double-standard: a womans' nipple is inappropriate and must be covered, wherein a mans' nipple is not and can be shown. In other words, a man can go completely shirtless and nobody would bat an eyelid, a woman would go completely shirtless and eyebrows would be raised.

    So the Free The Nipple campaign is a criticism on society. A female breast has no function other than to provide nourishment for offspring. The bit about it being sexy? That's all made up. We created it. You may find breasts sexy, I find breasts sexy, men and women all over the world find breasts sexy... but why? There's nothing about them that's inherently sexy, ergo, they cannot be considered socially inappropriate enough to warrant covering up.

    Some men have boobs. Moobs innit. They don't get covered up. Why not? What's the difference between a guy with boobs and a woman with boobs other than what equipment they've got several inches below said boobs? And if the boobs are the issue, not what they've got between their legs, then why don't man boobs get covered up? So it seems as though this runs a bit deeper than simply the covering of a nipple, which is also what the FTN movement is protesting against.

    There are people in various cultures on the planet that find the notion of breasts being sexy to be odd, so it's obviously not a human thing on a planetary scale... therefore it must be geographically social (I don't know if that phrase makes sense, but I'm sure you get my point).
    Personally, I find that quite interesting. And I'd very much like to know why breasts are considered sexy.
    I can't rep you enough. Your post presents exactly what I'm thinking. How come man boobs aren't obscene and inappropriate, but female boobs are? It's insane. INDEED WE CREATED THIS.

    I think that if it is OK for a man to be topless, such as on a beach, then it should be Ok for a woman to do so.

    As for bras, I expect comfort and wishing to fit in with society are two reasons.

      Why do women wear bras?

      All women own a pair of hibernating hamsters which they need to keep warm by keeping them close to their chest, preferably in a bra....
